For some reason I dropped the "at" from this headline and was curious how so many folks were eating their desks.

I know I'm a bit challenged in the brain arena...

I thought the damn headline read, "More workers Eating Their Desks." Then I thought, "Well, maybe, salt does enhance anything." (Becks, I added to your funny Icon.)

As the market for good jobs with health benefits tightens even more, more workers are p*ssing and sh*tting right at their desks, too.

Why? Are they giving out "Hero" badges? Paying you more? Letting you leave early?

Well technically, it really isn't their desk......if you think about it. It's the owners desk.
